Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a powerful antioxidant that offers many benefits for the skin. Vitamin C is one of the trending ingredients at the moment.

A powerful antioxidant, it helps to neutralise free radicals ( free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage collagen, cause inflammation, and contribute to signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines).

Vitamin C plays a crucial role in the synthesis of collagen, a protein that provides structure to the skin. Collagen is found naturally in the skin but decreases with age. Vitamin C helps to support the formation of new collagen, promoting skin firmness and elasticity.

A brilliant brightening ingredient, Vitamin C inhibits the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It also has great anti-inflammatory properties that helps soothe irritated skin and reduce redness, while helping to maintain moisture.

Vitamin C aids the process of wound healing as it helps the skin repair itself, making it beneficial for acne scars or other forms of skin damage.

While not a replacement for sunscreen, Vitamin C can enhance the effectiveness of sun protection providing an additional layer of protection against UV damage, minimising the impact of sun exposure on the skin.
